My husband’s family made lots of dinners that revolved around Swiss Chard and Sausage – whether on polenta or in another form. This recipe was all his idea, so he deserves credit, but he was okay with me making it vegetarian. If you are not a vegetarian, feel free to use any Italian sausage that you like.
Swiss Chard and Sausage
4 Vegetarian Italian Sausages (I used Tofurkey)
4good quality hot dog buns or rolls
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 bunch Swiss Chard, trimmed of stems and narrowly sliced
2 Tablespoons crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Prepare sausages by boiling them and cooking until tender, approximately 5 minutes.
2. Prepare Swiss Chard topping by warming oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add Swiss Chard and garlic, stirring until wilted. Sprinkle with red pepper and salt and pepper, stirring to incorporate.
3. Toast buns if desired. Place sausage in bun and top with Swiss Chard. Serve immediately.
